Today's word on journalism

March 17, 2009

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 1863-2009

"Can Seattle's oldest newspaper be successfully transformed into a child of the information age? The Northwest is a land of big dreams. With the demise of the Soviet Union, one quipster noted that Puget Sound is now home to three empires still bent on global dominion: Microsoft, and Starbuck's. If the stars align properly and with a quality product, Seattle will show the way to a new model for journalism of the written word."

--Joel Connelly, columnist, in today's final print edition of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer

IMAX film producer TC Christensen to give Media & Society lecture Wednesday

By Courtney Schoen

February 2, 2009 | The journalism and communication department at Utah State University is sponsoring a Media & Society Lecture featuring T.C. Christensen, award-winning cinematographer, director and producer. He will speak at noon Wednesday in the Eccles Conference Center on the campus of Utah State University.

All are invited to attend this event who are interested in learning more about film-making from the cinematographer of several feature films and IMax productions, including The ButterCream Gang, Rigoletto, Take the Lead, The Testaments and recently, Gordon B. Hinckley: A Giant Among Men.

Dr. Michael Sweeney, JCOM department head, said, "TC Christensen is a talented film-maker, and our department is thrilled to host him as he speaks for the Media & Society Lecture." Afterward he will speak with students and faculty.

Past Media & Society Lecture speakers have focused on TV and kids, the political process, innovations in PR to lead audiences, community activism, press and the presidency, and the dangers facing foreign correspondents.

"We should all take advantage of the opportunity to listen to the words of wisdom TC Christensen has to share with us," public relations lecturer Preston Parker said. "It's quite an honor to have him speak at Utah State University. Anyone interested in the film-making process or even the movie-watching process will likely enjoy this lecture."

Christensen has won several awards in the last 15 years, including the CINE Golden Eagle Award.
